While we were sleeping, news came out of a second trailer (first here) for George Clooney’s new movie, The American. We put up the new poster for the movie yesterday too so it looks like the marketing machine at Focus Features is working overtime.

The movie stars George Clooney, Anne Carey, Jill Green, Grant Heslov, Enzo Sisti, Ann Wingate, Moa Westeson and is directed by Anton Corbijn. It’s scheduled for release 26th November. Check out the new trailer below.

Synopsis: Alone among assassins, Jack is a master craftsman. When a job in Sweden ends more harshly than expected for this American abroad, he vows to his contact Larry that his next assignment will be his last. Jack reports to the Italian countryside, where he holes up in a small town and relishes being away from death for a spell. The assignment, as specified by a Belgian woman, Mathilde, is in the offing as a weapon is constructed. Surprising himself, Jack seeks out the friendship of local priest Father Benedetto and pursues romance with local woman Clara. But by stepping out of the shadows, Jack may be tempting fate.
